In the end of March 2012 BC Serdon prepared a group mission for Dutch companies operating in the environmental sector, water treatment and waste management. During the Dutch Trade Mission, which took place from 27 to 29 March 2012, representatives of the companies held meetings with some of the leaders on the Bulgarian market. The parties exchanged valuable information on the situation of the sector, the relative regulations, the preferences and demands of the clients. Real opportunities for expanding Dutch business in Bulgaria were created. The Dutch companies visited the Sofia waste water treatment plant in Kubratovo, and met representatives of the Ministry of Environment and Water and other state agencies officials for direct discussions on the hot topics of interest.
The Mission has been deemed successful by the Dutch companies, and Bulgarian participants also expressed their gratitude for being given the opportunity to establish valuable business contacts. After these initial steps, the mutually beneficial contacts are to come shortly.
